In his series of large-scale paintings, Timur Lukas depicts the impression of nature from days gone by. The artist’s own childhood memories – as the exhibition title suggests, fuelled by visits to his grandmother – are reduced to a few strong pictorial fragments: Windows, stairs, vases, trees. This subjectively characterised and therefore temporally and visually distorted recollection takes place on the canvas as the quintessence of these relics. As a result, sizes and shapes are distorted, but it is precisely this that creates the best possible remembered fiction as a clear certainty. Lukas only ever allows the viewer to guess at the category of real and false memories and their emotional connotations.
